editors took this holiday favorite and gave it a healthy makeover, making it less fattening and bird-friendly.

Recipe Ingredients
11⁄2 -cups chicken or vegetable broth
11⁄2 -cups water
2⁄3-cup cornmeal
31⁄2-cups plain breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
2⁄3-cup chopped celery
1⁄3-cup cranberries
1⁄4-cup plain cracked sunflower seeds
2-teaspoons rosemary

• Bring broth to a boil in a pot
• Add cornmeal to broth, continuously stirring to reduce lumps
• Add breadcrumbs, egg, chopped celery, rosemary, cranberries and sunflower seeds
• Let mixture stand for 5 minutes

How We Made It Bird-Friendly
This recipe is a healthy version you can share with your bird. We made our own breadcrumbs from toasted whole-wheat bread that was cut into bite-sized cubes. We removed the salt from the recipe and added cranberries and sunflower seeds to add flavor. If you prefer a stronger flavor, add in other spices or herbs to your portion.
